Confession time. I don't clean all my guns the same. While most of my guns are kept as close to new condition as possible, the gun I shoot the most often does not always get the same full on detail that others get. Being blessed to have a place to shoot at home, I know I will be shooting "that gun" within a couple of weeks or less. Right now "that gun" is the XDs. I absolutely love it and can't quit shooting it. So that leads me towards the question. Unless a gun is really filthy I general use CLP in an olive oil mister. I spray everything down fairly liberally with the exception of the striker channel. Then I start in with my gun rags, usually old cut up tee shirts and Q-tips. Quite often I just swab down the barrel with these big oversized Q-tips and don't brush it. So, will that cause me issues with build up or accuracy? Will I go to hell for that? Also, as long as I am confessing, I don't keep my frequent flier .22s **** and span either.
